Catherine D. Visocky, 84, a Dickson City resident, died Thursday March 24, 2016 at Allied Skilled Nursing Facility, Scranton.  She was preceded in death by her first husband, George Smith who died in 1973 and her second husband, Albert Visocky who died in 1989.

 

Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Anthony and Margaret Heinzman Ruddy and she was a member of St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City.  She was a graduate of Scranton Technical High School and prior to retirement she was employed by Haddon Craftsman, Scranton.

Catherine loved the outdoors and sports, being active in skiing, swimming, golf, walking, boating, and above all, dancing. She enjoyed especially the grace of the waltz and the swing of the jitterbug. She could have danced all night.

Closely related to the energy involved in these activities was traveling. Catherine was an avid traveler. She visited Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Moscow, Ireland, Eastern Europe and Rome, which included an audience with the Pope. Ocean cruising was a special joy. Closer to home she loved California where she frequently visited the grandchildren of her partner. Catherine took pride in her volunteer work. She was a volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House, enjoyed delivering Daffodils for the American Cancer Society and delivered Meals On Wheels. She was always there to lend a helping hand.

Surviving is her partner of 20 years, Don Melvin, Scranton. Known to her nieces and nephews as Aunt Kay, she found it very important to be a consistent and integral part of each of their lives. She was loved dearly and will be greatly missed by all of them.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Paul and Joseph Ruddy and a sister, Mary Nawrocki.

The funeral will be Wednesday at 10 a.m. from the Frank T. Mazur Funeral Home, Inc., 601 Dundaff St., Dickson City with mass of Christian burial at 10:30 a.m. in St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City. Interment St. Catherine’s Cemetery, Moscow.
